The 15:17 to Paris (w/John Ellis)

What is a better way to show reverence to three real-life heroes than by getting them to play themselves in a film? We could probably think of many, many ways.

This week, the guys welcome first-time guest John Ellis (of The Best Movie of the Year… So Far podcast) to discuss a giant Clint Eastwood misfire – The 15:17 to Paris. As well as learning all about God, guns and gentlemen, they also discuss Clint Eastwood’s hatred of teachers, the narration that is introduced and immediately dropped, the lengthy travelogue scenes and much, MUCH more.

The guys also drop a hint for next week’s movie (“Vampires in Wyoming”). Check on Facebook or Twitter on Monday for the reveal!
